you just fly in from mars?

Compared to a typical Leica-R lens of the same vintage, most Nikon Ai(s) lenses are mechanically compromised to save money. Typically, Nikon uses similar metals(Al alloy) for the mating helicoid threads, which, if the lens isn't kept well-greased, causes the helicoid to self-destruct with use. In that sense, it's cheaply made.
